Can You Hear Me Now?

Patient talking to doctorDoes your doctor look at you when you’re speaking to him or her? Or does he look at a computer screen while you’re speaking?  It’s up to you to make sure he hears, understands and responds to what you are asking or reporting.

Try this:  The next time you see him, if he is typing or looking at the screen while you’re talking, say something like, “I’ll wait until you’re done there before I continue. This is too important to me and I don’t want you to miss anything.”

And then tell him to call Bumgarner Transcription and EMR Integration at 864-905-3559 so he can pay more attention to you and his other patients, and less attention to that computer.
